A viral footage intercepted by The BBC Ghana arguably depicts the best definition for the cliché #WorkingUnderPressure.
As per the content of the footage, it captures the moment heavily armed Taliban militants stormed an Afghan TV news studio, surrounded the presenter who was reading news headlines and demanded that he praise the Taliban.
While presenting the news, the gun-toting militants invaded the studio and demanded on live TV that the anchor speaks with them, which according to WIO News, led to a debate between them and the presenter on air.
The militants reportedly made the news anchor speak about the collapse of the Government in Afghanistan and urged the Afghan people not to be afraid.
With armed Taliban fighters standing behind him, the presenter of Afghan TV's Peace Studio political debate programme says the Islamic Emirate (Taliban's preferred name) wants the public to "cooperate with it and should not be afraid".pic.twitter.com/rclw3P9E7M
